holarlily said: i have an essay on macbeth due and i missed everything, do you think you could give me three reasons for why macbeth was responsible for his own downfall?


Well you’re free to read the summary/ look in my macbeth tag/ the resources/ the how to posts. but basically I’d say 

  1. trying to make the prophesy happen
  2. stabbing people to make the prophesy happen
  3. continuing to stab people
  4. going off his head and thinking he’s immortal because prophesy
  5. repeat step 3 

someone needed to have a little real talk with mackers like,”stop trying to make prophesy happen, it’s not going to happen.” Idk, if I were you I’d want to talk about kingship and power and corruption, maybe throw in a little fatal flaw action up in there. examine junctures where he made decisions about stabbing people that led him to his eventual downfall

Thanks for tagging me, beloved L, and sorry for the v late response. I set this meme free to play in the world, and tag everyone in this bar. (FWIW what’s on my media player isn’t a wholly accurate picture of what I listen to, which is usually just one song on repeat at a time. Currently that is You Turn Me On, I’m A Radio.)

“A Zayn fan knows that despite being empirically the best singer and the most attractive member of the band, Zayn is not the most famous member of One Direction. This is the Tao of Zayn, to which all Zayn fans subscribe: being extremely good at everything and yet somehow flying under the radar. A Zayn fan will read all of Infinite Jest and not brag about it once. A Zayn fan loves herself and knows her boundaries. A Zayn fan is like a human iceberg, with untold depths beneath the water. A Zayn fan might not even tell anyone they like One Direction.” What your One Direction crush says about you. (via beardzayn)
